I've been having trouble with YouTube videos for a while now, seemingly ever since YouTube changed the way their pages look a few months ago. The problems are seemingly randomly intermittent. Sometimes YouTube works fine, other times it doesn't work at all.

In the YouTube app, whether I got to a video by tapping a link or by searching within the app, it says "Could not load movie". If I try to watch a video using the desktop version of YouTube.com in Safari, a blue lego and warning message appear signifying the absence of Adobe Flash Player. Before I started having this problem, a "play triangle" inside a circle would appear, which, when tapped, would play the video. If I try to use YouTube mobile (m.youtube.com) in Safari, a thumbnail of the video comes up and has a "play triangle" inside a curved rectangle, but when I tap it, either nothing happens or the page just reloads.

I realize that I could probably fix the problem by restoring or by updating to iOS 4, but restoring takes way too long and I don't feel like reinstalling all my apps, and iOS 4 lags terribly on my iPod. My iPod is jailbroken, but it has nothing to do with the problems I'm having with YouTube.

What can I do to be able to watch YouTube videos again?

Second-generation 8GB iPod Touch, iPhone OS 3.1.2

    make the effort to restore. it's the only logical way..and mentioning that you've jailbroken your iPod isn't gonna get you anywhere with Apple as they do not condone such activities.

    i know that ios4 for 2nd gen iTouch *****, but it may fix it.
